Back in October of last year, camera manufacturer Kodak officially announced a new smartphone called the Ektra. True to the brand’s background in photography, the Ektra is a camera-centric mobile device, and at times, even looks more like a camera than a cell phone. Well, the Kodak Ektra is now made available for purchase from third party retail companies such as Amazon and Best Buy for a price of $400.
Nowadays, a smartphone's camera plays a vital role on how marketable the device will be. Since most smartphone users today are active on photo sharing apps like Instagram and Facebook, it is perfectly understandable why many are looking for a phone that comes with a capable camera. So when OnePlus made an announcement on its partnership with DxO, it came as a delightful surprise to many.
Google unveiled some pretty awesomestuff during this year’s I/O developer conference. But perhaps the coolest one is Google Lens, which can be described as a sort of software platform that can basically read text and even identify objects either from an image or through the view of a camera sensor. It then processes whatever it recognizes in real time and of course, tells the user what it has detected.
Well, just to be clear about everything, Android O, the upcoming newest version of Google’s Android mobile operating system, has actually already been made available for several weeks now but as a developer preview, which meant that only app developers can access it. But during Google’s annual I/O conference, the tech giant took the opportunity to announce to the rest of the world that it is now releasing a beta version of Android O.
HTC has unveiled its newest flagship offering, and it is called the HTC U11. This handset combines a stylish design with some high end specifications, including pressure sensors that allow mobile users to squeeze the device to control it (as rumored nearly a month ago).
Republic Wireless has an exciting deal for new customers who decide to switch to its network and bring their Android powered mobile devices with them -- half a year of free mobile service. This latest special offer from the mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) is made available only from May 16th until May 22nd of this month (or while supplies last), and only to interested parties who currently own an eligible Android run smartphone device.
It appears that Motorola has a full year ahead, that is in terms of smartphone releases -- well at least according to tipster extraordinaire Evan Blass. The famous leaker has recently got hold of an image that portrays a presentation showing Lenovo’s smartphone plans for the rest of 2017. Based on the leaked picture, it appears that the Chinese tech giant is readying to launch at least nine handsets in the next few months.
